The organs of reproduction play a very important role in the body. In women, they are: the labia minora and majora (the vulva), clitoris, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus, and vagina.
The male genitalia are: the penis, scrotum, testes, vas deferens and epididymis. These organs, just like every other organ in the body can develop problems. When they do, they can create pain and not function as they are meant to.
Most times, there are certain signs and symptoms that indicate the presence of a problem. Therefore, when a person notices any of these, prompt action can be taken before much damage is done.
As a man, your reproductive organs are definitely important and of value to you. If you therefore notice anything unusual, you should not hesitate to see your doctor. Do not “wait and see” or try to treat yourself, these could be very dangerous.
There’s nothing embarrassing or shameful about your health condition. You should therefore not let anything prevent you from getting help when you need one. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor:
- Swelling or tenderness in your scrotum either after an injury or when no injury occurred
- Burning sensation or pain when urinating
- Yellowish or greenish discharge from your penis
- A painful, itchy rash or sore red bumps on your penis
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Blood in your urine or semen
